This morning brought the cavalcade of nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be handed out in September. Westworld was out in front with a whopping 22 nominations for its freshman season while other debut shows like This Is Us, as well as continuing shows like Veep and Saturday Night Live, also landed a surprising number of nods. But there are only so many slots for nominees and plenty of shows were snubbed by the Television Academy. Thankfully, it wasn’t all bad news though as there were some pleasant (sometimes goofy) surprises as well.
Below, we run through the biggest 2017 Emmy snubs and surprises. Read More »
Today brought the nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, and Westworld came out on top on the drama side of things with a total of 22 nominations across the board. On the comedy side, Veep was the leader with a total of 17 nominations. The miniseries Feud: Bette and Joan also fared well with 18 nominations.
Outside of the leaders of the pack, shows like Stranger Things, This Is Us, Big Little Lies, The Night Of and The Handmaid’s Tale made a big splash. Plus, Saturday Night Live had a big presence this year as well, tying Westworld with 22 nominations as well.

HBO’s comedy series Girls is nearing an end to its sixth and final season. We’re not sure where the stories of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) will end up, but we won’t have to wait for long. Though this is the final season of the show, Lena Dunham has said that she would love to bring these characters back for a movie, but not until enough time has passed for them to be in a completely different place in their lvies.
That brings us to one Girls project that’s even further down the road. In honor of the final season of Girls, the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live decided to round up the four stars of the HBO series to put together a pilot for an update of The Golden Girls, featuring Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna living together like Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty did in the original version of the series.

Everyone’s gotta grow up sometime, even self-absorbed creative types eking out a living in Brooklyn. Which is why this year marks the sixth and final season of Girls, the show that turned Lena Dunham into a household name and set Adam Driver on the path toward a galaxy far, far away.
Over the years, we’ve watched as Hannah and her friends fought and made up, pursued new relationships and new careers, faced changing circumstances and tried to better themselves. Now it’s time to see what all of that character development has amounted to, and send them off with one last push toward adulthood. Considering they’re still bickering about who the real grown-ups are among them, though, maturing may be easier said than done. Watch the Girls season 6 trailer below.

HBO’s current run of original programming is winding down before the end of the year. Westworld, Divorce and Insecure will all have their season finales in the next few weeks, but they’ll all be back with second seasons, presumably around the same time of the year in 2017. That means it’s time to look ahead at HBO’s original programming coming early next year, and that includes the end of one of their hit shows, and the first season for an all-new comedy series.
The final trailer for Lena Dunham‘s hit series Girls has arrived online along with the first trailer for Crashing, the new comedy series starring comedian and former late night host Pete Holmes. Watch them both after the jump. Read More »

Everyone has to grow up and move on sometime. Even the girls of Girls. HBO has officially announced it’s ending Lena Dunham‘s comedy after season six, in accordance with Dunham’s previously stated wishes. More on the Girls final season after the jump. Read More »
The new season of Girls is coming next February, and the full trailer has arrived, teasing what’s in store for these New Yorkers with the biggest first world problems you’ve ever seen. The trailer says “Girls grow up and grow apart, but friendship is forever complicated.” Though from the looks of this trailer, I don’t really see any evidence of any of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) growing up at all.

HBO‘s Girls flew a little under the radar this past season. What was once one of the most talked-about shows on the air has just become another component of the larger television tapestry. By this point, HBO subscribers, HBO Now users, and people who use their parents’ HBO Go accounts know whether or not the frequently humiliating and brutally honest misadventures of Lena Dunham‘s Hannah Horvath are for them. The think pieces have slowed to a trickle.
But Girls will be Girls and it’s still perfectly good at doing what it does. It’s going to keep going as long as Dunham and her team have embarrassing and uncomfortably personal stories to recreate on screen. The first footage from season 5 has arrived and once again, Dunham showcases a shamelessness/fearlessness that is genuinely admirable.
You can watch the Girls season 5 teaser below.
